New report details health and environmental damage from GM soy

An in-depth report highlighting the health and environmental harm caused by genetically modified Roundup Ready soy was released last fall.

The report, “GM Soy: Sustainable? Responsible?,” was compiled by a group of international scientists and highlights new research by Argentine government scientist, Professor Andrés Carrasco, which found that glyphosate causes malformations in frog and chicken embryos at doses far lower than those used in agricultural spraying.

The report challenges commercial claims that GM soy cultivation is sustainable and that the glyphosate herbicide it is sprayed with is safe.
